Installing .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8 and Server 2012 without Internet connection.

If you are using the Windows operating system, the .NET Framework may already be installed on your computer. Specifically, the .NET Framework 4.5 is included with Windows 8 and installed on your computer with the Windows 8 operating system. However, if you install an app that requires a specific version of the .NET Framework, the app’s setup program might install the .NET Framework on your computer or prompt you to install it. For example, the .NET Framework 3.5 is not automatically installed with Windows 8. To run apps that require the .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 8, you must enable version 3.5 on your computer. There are two ways you can do this: by installing or running an app that requires the .NET Framework 3.5 (that is, by installing the .NET Framework 3.5 on demand), or by enabling the .NET Framework 3.5 in Control Panel. Both options require an Internet connection.
